Arizona Man Charged With Murder in 1988 Boston Slayings

An Arizona man arrested in St. Louis, Missouri, is being held without bail in Massachusetts after he was charged with murder in the 1988 deaths of two people.

Carlton Henderson, 52, was charged in connection with the May 7, 1988 shooting deaths of 26-year-old William Medina and 22-year-old Antonio Dos Reis in Boston's Roxbury neighborhood.

Authorities allege Medina and Reis had been sitting in a vehicle that night when Henderson gunned them down, according to the Boston Globe.

Police say bullets from the 1988 killings were matched to a gun recovered in a 1993 shooting death in Miami.

After his St. Louis arrest last month, Henderson returned to Massachusetts Monday to face the charges against him.

Henderson is being represented by John Amabile. He is due back in court June 22.
